It describes possible a decade to get here, while Ariel Winter is going to finally live her best life, she’s living life by her standards.
The actress has risen up our very eyes when she having been role in “Modern Family” when her age was just 11 years old. Now she is 21, Ariel is saying about the body-shaming she tolerated over the years and affected her self esteem.
Added by her “I’ve experienced body shaming and cyberbullies when she was seven or eight years now that I’ve been in the spotlight,” she told about Shape. “At 11 years old, I started my career on the show and I was super flat and had no curves on the body and was getting hate for that. Then overnight, my body went totally changed and I was this curvy woman. I didn’t know how to navigate that and got so much hate for it. It was really hurtful, and I struggled a lot.”
AS of the complements, Ariel started trying to please her critics.
“I exasperated to smash diet to lose weight to try to get shape body and fit the standard of what I believed everybody wanted me to look like, and it just never worked — I wasn’t making anyone else happier, and I wasn’t making myself any happier,” Ariel said. “It led to me a lot of anxiety & depression. But now I am reached at the point where I don’t like to read Instagram comments. I act what I exactly want, I like to post what I like to want, and I say that what I want to say. I don’t like to focus on pleasing and liking anyone else but myself.”
Ariel’s body has been an online topic of conversation for a long time, especially when she was just 17 years old, she tried breast reduction to relieve back pain. At that time, a lot of people also criticized for the decision that she made to go from a 32F to a 34D.
“I think it’s ridiculous when I’ve had breast reduction surgery and because someone is losing weight as people don’t love their body. Now People love their bodies at all stages, whatever their body looks like,” Ariel added. “I a lot of confused on people reactions and comments after my surgery being like, ‘Well, you’re trying to tell people to love their bodies just the way they are, but you got a breast reduction,’ and you know, the thing is, my body was great back then but I did something because I felt it was better for me.”
“I had also experienced back problems, and I felt I wasn’t right in my own skin, so I wanted the change for me,” she sustained. “I didn’t do it as a lot of people were writing negative comments online. As long as you do something that matters to you and makes you feel better, and raises self-esteem, then people shouldn’t hate on that. The most important relationship we have is with ourselves.”
